CQ Black Raspberry Açaí Jalapeño Mint Infused Cocktail Mixer Recipe

RECIPE YIELD: 2 POUCH RECIPE WILL FILL OUR 3.5 - GALLON BEVERAGE DISPENSER TWICE


CQ Infused Beverage System

  • 1 BPA-Free, Dishwasher Safe CQ Beverage Dispenser

  • 1 Insert (patent pending)

  • 1 Base (natural bamboo or brushed stainless steel)

  • 1 Lid

  • 1 Portion Control Mixing Bucket

  • 1 CQ Slicer Key/Wand

Confirm that the spigot is screwed in tightly and then carefully lower the insert into the jar.


Equipment Needed

  • 1 Commercial Slicer (Do not slice by hand! If you don't have a slicer, use a mandoline)

  • 1 Metal Strainer

  • 1 Muddler


Ingredients

  • 2 Pouches of CQ Black Raspberry Açaí  Puree

  • 6 Jalapeños - 12 slices

  • 14 Fresh Mint Stalks

  • 3 Gallons of Filtered Water


Using a slicer, cut a test slice and compare it to the thickness of the CQ slicer key (on the end of the wand). Adjust the slicer until your slices match the thickness of the slicer key. Once calibrated, slice up all ingredients as necessary.


The Art of Infused Cocktail Mixers

To set the insert in place, position a mint at each corner of the jar between the insert and the jar. Use the CQ Wand to push the slices all the way down. Decorate the rest of the jar using the CQ Wand to position the remaining orange and lime slices as shown in the picture.


INFUSING THE WATER

Using the CQ wand to measure the water level, fill the CQ Mixing Bucket with 3 gallons of filtered water. Add 2 pouches of CQ Black Raspberry Açaí Puree and stir. 

Next, place a metal strainer in the mixing bucket and muddle any remaining Jalapeño slices and mint. This technique will ensure that no fruit pieces end up blocking the spigot later. Congratulations, you’ve just created CQ Black Raspberry Açaí Jalapeño Mint Infused Cocktail Mixer!

CLEANUP & STORAGE

  1. Empty the beverage container’s ice and liquid into the sink. 

  2. Remove the insert by sliding it upwards or by reaching into the jar by the spigot cutout to get a secure grip on the edge of the insert. 

  3. Dump any fruit, herbs or vegetables into your compost bin.

  4. Load all plastic parts onto a dishwasher tray and run through your dishwasher. Do not wash the stainless steel or bamboo bases, instead, wipe by hand with an appropriate cleaner.

  5. Air-dry and reassemble the CQ Infused Beverage System. Store in a secure case or room.

To clean any stubborn fruit residue, lay the beverage container on a cotton rag, and scrub the inside of the beverage container using a cotton rag with warm water and soap. Note: USE ONLY COTTON RAGS! Anything else may permanently scratch or damage your CQ equipment.
